The Palms

The Palms is a luxury complex of six villas set on the award winning beach of Bwejuu on the South East coast of Zanzibar. With only six villas, it is small and intimate - perfect for honeymooners or couples looking for privacy.

The Palms is a beautiful beach retreat set in tropical gardens overlooking the award winning beach (chosen by Conde Nast Traveller magazine as one of the top 30 beaches in the world). The six private thatched “bandas” shelter day beds and loungers to provide intimate beachfront privacy.

The hotel offers the luxuries and comforts of a high quality resort in a relaxed and intimate setting. Each of the six palm-thatched villas exudes an atmosphere of understated elegance and is equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV, day beds and private outdoor jacuzzi. There is a driftwood bar and a beautiful mosaic pool, and guests looking for total relaxation of the mind and body can enjoy the Sanctuary Spa next door at Breezes Beach Club, which provides a blissful and tranquil setting as well as a wide range of treatments. Facilities at Breezes (which can be used by residents of The Palms) also include a gym, floodlit tennis court, windsurfing, snorkelling and scuba diving.
